What is it?

A roof vent is an opening in the roof of a building that allows air to circulate, providing ventilation for the attic or roof space.


Several important functions:

  • Moisture Control: A roof vent helps to prevent moisture buildup in the attic. Reducing the risk of mold, mildew, and structural damage to the roof and building.


  • Temperature Control: Regulate the temperature in the attic by allowing hot air to escape. Preventing the buildup of heat that can cause damage to the roof and building structure.


  • Improved Indoor Air Quality: By providing proper ventilation for the attic, indoor air quality is improved and helps reduce indoor air pollutants.


  • Energy Efficiency: By regulating the temperature in the attic, roof vents can help reduce the load on the building’s HVAC system, improving energy efficiency and reducing energy costs.


  • Extended Roof Life: Proper ventilation helps to prevent moisture buildup in the attic and roof, extending the life of the roof and preventing costly repairs.
